I finally ran out of my (discontinued) Sure Soft Solid supply. It lasted me a little over a year. While you can still find both Sure Soft Solid and the replacement Sure MAX online, they are terribly expensive. At brick-and-mortar stores I couldn’t find either one. Not at HEB, not at Walmart, not at Walgreens.
What I did find at Walmart was a single lonely Old Spice Red Zone High Performance Solid bar, the one mentioned by Moi in this comment – he wasn’t lying after all. It was the “after hours” smell. Whatever that means.
Same parent company, same ingredients, but the smell… I already feel more manly.
My supply of Sure Soft Solid has yet to run out (see this and this for background information). Recently, however, Moi and I got to compare our deodorants (this is how the Kirsch brothers bond).
Yes, it’s true: Sure Soft Solid and Sure Max are the same thing. Except the newer Sure Max has a whopping 20% of Aluminum Zirconium Trichlorohydrex Gly (anhydrous) instead of the now discontinued Sore Soft Solid’s paltry 19%. Now, I’m no chemist, but more Aluminum Zirconium Trichlorohydrex Gly to combat your offensive B.O. is a good thing in my book. Everything else appears to be identical. I’m not sure about the available scents, though. I never get the scents. In any case, this is all very good news.
